Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is hoping for a change of luck in Wednesday night's Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich.

Mourinho claimed he had been bereft of fortune in previous matches at the last four stage after twice losing to Liverpool (in 2005 and 2007) - when at Chelsea - and again to arch rivals Barcelona last season - a defeat he blamed on a UEFA conspiracy.

Madrid go into Wednesday's second leg with Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu 2-1 down with a place against either Barca or Chelsea the prize for the winner, and Mourinho said: "Overall I have not been lucky in semi-finals of the Champions League."
